the obama administration have a problem callling it terror? >> >> stephen: why didn't they call it terror right away? and don't you miss the bush administration, when we knew exactly how afraid to be thanks to a color-coded scale that changed based on threats they often wouldn't explain? hey, what's that noise? did you hear something? don't you feel safer now that i've told you there might be something to be afraid of? or are we not scared enough of terror because president obama might not be telling us enough to be terrified about? did i have time to wash my hands just now? it didn't seem like it, did it? speaking of filth, are there more heinous assertions we could be pulling out of our ass? >> here's the other question. and there are so many other questions we need to ask -- did we trade off-- and i have no evidence of this-- did we trade off the life of our ambassador and three other americans for that crowd? -- were these people expendable as part of a mideast foreign policy? >> stephen: while we're throwing around accusations with no evidence, what was president obama's role in 9/11
cutting edge prevention techniques. and i'm very proud to work for the obama administration, for secretary, as grant said, that has not only focused on treatment and research, but prevention in so many things. and, so, my story is not unique. but on behalf of the obama administration, on behalf of secretary kathleen sebelius, i'm here to say thank you for the work of san francisco and the local, at the state, and at the national/international level has done for more than 30 years that have saved lives, that have built commutes, that have allowed families to come together and grow. because this is not 1981. it's almost 2013. and this place is revolutionery and this 9-1/2 million will continue to make it the pinnacle of world research and prevention on hiv. so, thank you very, very much for having me here. (applause) >> i just looked over my shoulder and here is dr. george rutherford, director of the aids office when i came here many years ago. we have many generations of individuals who work and contribute to the work we all do here. next i'd like to introduce dan bernal who is the district
people under the obama administration. but it was a remarkable thing to hear. because who could really believe that other than people who had come from these institutions. and my response, of course, is "where have you been for the last couple of years? what rock have you been under, that you haven't seen that these guys would sell their soul for a few basis points of profit?" that ideas like they wouldn't risk their reputations or wouldn't embarrass themselves again, as bill dudley, the president of the new york fed said to me when i complained about relying too heavily on credit-rating agencies. this was the core ideology and approach of how they viewed the financial crisis. it wasn't the bank's fault. and if we could just trust them, we'll be in a good place again. >> and yet, there haven't been prosecutions have there, of these -- the people culpable for this crash? >> no, i mean, what our office did was to detect, prosecute, investigate, and refer for prosecution those who tried to steal from the program. so we were blocked out of any activities that occurred before tarp. because
that the obama administration green lighted it. >> hold on, charles, those were gaffes in every single case that's what that person believed. only became a mistake when the backlash game and i know that andrea understands this having done campaigns as i do. and you have to know where voters are if you're not between 18 and 30, you don't get the ad. young voters are critical and many have not-- >> and you think this is a good ad? >> i think when you look at the fact, the ad it over 2 million hits on youtube where most of the young voters are-- >> some of the the vulgar things had millions of hits. is there no line, the office of the president of the united states, does it even care anymore about certain things or just pure desperation at this point? >> and charles, when mitt romney is not telling the truth about chrysler going to china, there's a lot to talk about here. so, there's a lot that's going on in in campaign that's up for debate and everyone can say where the line is. i think a lot of lines have changed and through every campaign cycle, that's a disappointment. but when you look at youn
for the obama administration is married women. they are less dependent on the government, and less likely to buy the president's argument. so they're the group want obama campaign is really worried about. when i talk to the married women, on the one hand they say they think romney can handle the economy and they're worried about the republicans being too extreme and go back and forth. the romney campaign is trying to get them to drop this and think about this at the last minute. there are a small number of undecided voters -- and the question of trust. he was saying trust is a matter central to the presidency, measure important than anything else, and trying to tie that to this notion of romney changing his positions. that was also a pitch to women. romney's pitch, bipartisanship. >> schieffer: let me bring up this, a spent friday, spent a good part of the day with stu rothen bargain, and charlie cook, and i would these are the most respected analysts going today. both told me separately they could not remember a time this deep into the campaign when they said they had no idea how this was going
to address the panel. you know have six prosecutions in the obama administration after three prior to -- after three prior prosecutions. you now have a press that is not just the new york times, not just the "washington post," but wikileaks, individuals no longer needing the mainstream media to put documents, formerly classified documents into the public environment. so it is a changing landscape on both sides. different kind of media and i think a different attitude in government, at least that is what appears to us. the rise and concerns about terrorism and then the concern for government secrecy, and the ability to transfer large amounts of data electronically. you know, if you think back to the pentagon papers, daniel ellsworth has to come to the new york times or a paper like the new york times to get the secret's out, and that was the only way to make them public, not so now. when the government wanted to do terrible things, they actually had to send people to break into his psychiatrist office. no longer necessary. they now have other tools for doing those kinds of things. i
not provide the people any money. fortunately with the obama administration this has changed and these people are coming back and being able to be given some money, so on the federal level i think there's some improvement. when it comes to san francisco i think we need to do more, and i would research this further and answer that question later. thank you. >> all right thank you sir. >> i am under the assumption i'm a problem solver. first you have to identify the problem and i would lump this into three groups. you have people who do not want to be helpedda that want to be live on the street. you have people that don't know where the help is and people people that want it and we need to identify the people that want to be helped that can be helped and there are certain people no matter what you do they do not want help. they want to live on the streets and that in turn we should enforce the laws on the books, and that is the only way i believe you can solve the problem. it's not about money. it's about identifying the problem and i believe you've got to identify who the homeless people a
committee and the senate intelligence committee. how do you answer critics that say the obama administration has bungled this before, during, and after the attack? >>guest: well, chris, we share the grief that mr. woods exhibited in that segment. let me say this, we will get to the bottom of this. the intelligence committee will hold hearings, and the state department has their own investigation underway. but i have to say any observer would looks at what happened in benghazi would have to say this situation has been politicizeed. governor romney realizes his anxiouses and his reaction was unbecoming to potential commander in chief and backed off of those comments. in the debate last week, benghazi and libya was not raised when governor romney had a chance to discuss it. we ought to be asking in the spirit of ambassador stevens and pulling together. after 9/11, and --. >>chris:, wait, wait, wait, senator, it is a legitimate issue to discuss before an election when four americans were killed and there are questions of intelligence failures before and during the attack. >>guest: it is a legiti
in the bush administration and there's always been a point of emphasis, if you will, on fema by the obama administration. i think frankly it won't have mattered who came into the presidency in the post katrina world there was going to be an emphasis on fema. you weren't going to let that get politicized. yes, it's a political appointee and you're going to have somebody who came with a background to do this stuff. so i think that they realize that it's a high-wire act, this emergency management business. and most of the time if you do a good job it's good politics. if you blow it, it's really bad politics. >> i agree. >> it can be unrecoverable politics. so this is a case where good politics and good public policy and good management all converge. it's good politics to do a good job. you're not playing one side against the other. >> you know, i've always thought that the democrats being the government party because they believe in government more than republicans owe a greater debt, a greater responsibility to be good at it, right? this is a little more ideological but it seems to me if th
question mar marks. >> very much so. >> bret: still ahead, more inconsistencies between what the obama administration knew and what it said about the libya terror attack. first, karl rove and joe trippi on who is ahead in the presidential voting and what really matters, the electoral college map. we do it every week. coming up. as we head to break, cape may, new jersey, look in darkness there at the rin and the wind. keep it here. i know the name of eight princesses. i'm an expert on softball. and tea parties. i'll have more awkward conversations than i'm equipped for because i'm raising two girls on my own. i'll worry about the economy more than a few times before they're grown. but it's for them, so i've found a way. who matters most to you says the most about you. massmutual is owned by our policyholders so they matter most to us. massmutual. we'll help you get there.

never happened. it all began under the obama administration. it just astounds me how the whole platform is based on george bush's policies. this 12 million at job creation is, again, just the smoke and mirrors. they use this every time they run. bush said he would lower taxes, create jobs. the tea party said they were born to create jobs. it seems like the same rhetoric over and over again. guest: great question, doug. i was critical of the bush presidency. we funded things like no child left behind. we created prescription drug programs in the not pay for them. the american people held the republican party responsible for it and threw them out of office. they are focused on creating jobs, growing the economy, and not focusing on big spending programs we know the american people do not want. you have the commitment of republicans that are no. 1 jobs focus will be on the economy. host: a.j. spiker, the chair of the iowa republican party joining us this morning from des moines. we will continue our series on "washington journal" on battleground states tomorrow with ohio. for those of you
entirely and it's describing what is going to go on with the obama administration. you would have to be a mind reader to know what that statement means. >> cynthia, most of the program is dealing with the storm obviously our concern. but president obama was asked about the storm's impact on the presidential election today. listen to what his response was. >> the impact of the election, sir? >> i am not worried at this point about the impact on the election. i am worried about the impact on families and i'm worried about the impact on our first responders. i'm worried about the impact on our economy and on transportation. you know, the ee lx will take care itself. >> how big of an impact is the hurricane to have in voters' minds, cynthia? >> first of all, the presidential's statement was pitch perfect. i am here in my capacity as president of the united states to support everyone. those who will vote for me and those who will not. but i think it's also true that mitt romney must be feeling a little bit frustrated by the fact that viewers are, first of all, going to see reports most
the election. >> turn over the evidence. they are increasing calls for the obama administration they are outraged they are staying quiet. listen to this. >> very good at touting and giving all of the details like when they got bin laden. but now we know there were tapes recordings inside the consulate during this fight and they have gotten -- they came when the fbi got in and quote top secret. >> republicans are politicizing the issue. >> is this tearrism 101. a new york university professor having students to plot a terror attack. professor helen maris asking students to write up 15 pages describing how they would do it and what the aftermath would be. she is a former navy criminal investigator defends the class saying it prepares students for a career in intelligence. some police officers are calling it an insult to those who died on 9-11. shocking details about the meningitis outbreak. health officials waited 6 days before they noted the public. they have back pain shots linked to the infections. 25 people died in the outbreak including three from the state of indiana. 344 pe
corporations, and encouragement of civil society actors to join in that boycott. >> the obama administration has rejected this proposal, calling it "irresponsible and unacceptable." planned parenthood has filed a new lawsuit challenging a funding ban in texas that seeks to exclude it from a program for low-income women. the texas program offers cancer and health screenings as well as birth control services to some 130,000 women, about 40% of whom are served through planned parenthood. but texas governor rick perry has sought to bar planned parenthood's involvement because the group also provides abortions. an appeals court upheld the ban last week, but on friday, a texas judge issued a temporary standing order pending arguments in a new challenge from planned parenthood. attorneys for planned parenthood said the ban is illegal because it would force texas to lose 90% of the program's funding from the federal government. a coalition of environmental groups has asked the epa to subject oil and gas extracting companies to the same emissions oversight as other energy industry sectors. the enviro
-49. but, argues mo shgamong voters that are mind, governor romney garnered 51% versus president obama, 41 and 48, and, around the centers yesterday, the issue of benghazi is bubbling up and people are demanding answers from the administration. i think it will have a big impact in the state of wisconsin. >> chris: we'll get to benghazi in a little later in our discussion, senator udall, i was surprised to learn 80% of voters in your state will have voted before election day and the romney camp says they are winning in absentee requests and early voting and are also swinging the suburbs around denver, that went for obama, four years ago. >> good morning, chris. we have a great ground game here in colorado. you are right, about 80% of votes will be cast before election day. but, in the end, colorado will go for a president who has overseen slow but steady economic growth an unemployment levels below 8% and the coloradans look for a leader who says what he means and means what he says and governor romney has three problems, we don't know if it is moderate mitt or me, too, mitt or conservative
the obama administration. there is only so much to you in do. a storm like this in new york, that is something we have not seen for a long time. there is certainly the earth -- possibility for people to say, rightly or wrongly, that the federal government did not respond appropriately. i have not seen any signs that any major figure in the republican party is trying to do that. unlike when some people immediately decided that hurricane irene would be the obama katrina. a couple people, including newt gingrich, suggested a quick response this time was at odds with the respond." pose -- at odds with the response posed to the staff in benghazi, libya. we will have to wait to see what the response is. host: final question for you -- how was this impacting the journalists that cover the campaign? caller: one thing that we are expecting an impact on, e-mail and electricity service in the washington, d.c. area. there are contingency plans for that kind of emergency. i am not the person in charge of .hat host: bob, thank you so much for covering that force this morning. we would lik
years of an obama administration would change any of that and particularly momentum on the economic front was just something that this board just couldn't see. governor romney by virtue of his experience and strong business acumen coming through the executive ranks of what he did in massachusetts, the board felt very strongly and confidently that he was the one who could best position the country for an economic revival and jump start the economy with with meaningful salaries and jobs. >> what's the immediate reaction of iowans to your paper's endorsement? >> you know, thomas, the great thing about being in iowa is we have incredibly smart readers and voters. this is the first republican endorsement we've made since 1972. we've got some of them right and some wrong. there's some you wish you could take back, i'm sure. this isn't about "the register" or our endorsement. this is a state with enkridably thoughtful and very, very smart readers and voters who will listen to us and also more importantly sit around the kitchen table before they go out on election day or cast an early ballo

"why is the obama administration's policy for enforcing federal law different in colorado from its harsh enforcement in california? is it because colorado is a swing state?" and then there was this from a substance abuse counselor.

's taking so long? >> remember, the obama administration testified in a hearing that we had that they were watching this or witnessing this virtually in real time. we have survivors that were there on the scene. they know exactly what happened. when i went to libya and i visited with the people there at our embassy in tripoli, there was no doubt in their minds what had happened. there was no mention of the video. there was no mention of a mob. but they know exactly what happened, plus supposedly according to press reports, we had drones in the air. so i think we do know what happened. we have four dead americans and we have an administration that is not being held accountable. it's been mislieding the public and they're not releasing the video and audio we though that they have. >> steve: why aren't they being held accountable? i know a couple days ago, the president sat down for a local tv interview with a guy from kusa out in denver and a couple of times he said, were they denied requests for help? we're talking about the c.i.a. guys who said, we want to go in and help those guys and app

much money they spend on the obama administration and the stimulus bill david said was working. $531 million. you know what? in the 19th congressional district of illinois. that stimulus bill did not work at all. that was a failure. we are still paying interest on it. >> time. the 13th congressional district, if nothing happens, is scheduled to have a large number -- number -- what would you propose to do to deal with the ever increasing debt of the u.s. postal service? >> a large part of the debt related to the postal service is due to the fact that career politicians in washington d.c. set up a scheme by which the postal service had to find 75 years into the future with respect to retirement. and future pension costs and health care costs. i am doing that. that would go a long way to restoring the solvency of the postal office. it is endorsed by numerous postal workers throughout the district. i will stand up for them when i get to washington d.c. >> i do not know when people become the career politician. what has to happen when we talk about overall spending in washington, we have

's to president obama's benefit. not only does its make his administration look competent but it makes the case for a government role, the role of government has been one of the fundamental debates between these two candidates. if the federal response does not look so competent we've seen how devastating that can be for incumbent presidents. we saw that with katrina, for instance, and george w. bush. >> woodruff: dan, what about a role for governor romney at a time like this? >> well, it's minimal at this point. i mean he really has to remain essentially invisible. he can't look like he's trying to do anything to exploit the politics of the moment. so in a sense there's more potential up side for president obama, but as susan said more potential down side for governor romney i think it is a matter of just kind of waiting and watching and then deciding at what point he can go back out. i mean one of the issues is, does this short circuit kind of the surge of energy that we've seen around the romney campaign? there's no question that there is more energy out there in the republican base and at ev
talk about the mainstream media coverage this week. i love what you said. you said if obama had been as clueless pandering and flop sweaty as romney in this foreign debate pundits around the country would have said they would have covered a romney administration. since the demonstration won, most would say romney didn't do too badly. that's bull crap. romney lost big time. he acted like sarah palin, a talking point machine who couldn't string together a proposition or a thought. he looked like nixon on meth sputtering useless and [ bleep ] so sweaty. it was a disaster and you're right. there is still this false equivalency in the mainstream media, isn't there? >> exactly. if obama flops everybody's talking about it. this gets back to what we talked about last week. if a democrat flops democrats are willing to say okay, we screwed up. but if a republican flops, it is immediately circle the wagons and we're certainly not going to spin this in any way other than the greatest triumph that anyone has ever had at a de
